Sounds like a pasv issue. Anyone got tips for this guy? I don't know SmartFTP well enough to instruct him on where to go.

The thing is, every other server works fine. I'll try and mess w/the passive settings in smart ftp. I just find it weird that servers 1 through 3 work fine and i cant get into 4. Thanks!

These are the settings that I use, no problems yet:

Make sure you use Active rather than Passive.

Make sure the transfer mode is Binary, and not ASCII.

Make sure your server timeout is set above 120 seconds. Somewhere around 180 (when the server is busy, sometimes it takes over a minute for it to get to your FTP client's request for the directory listing)

Try connecting in the early morning rather than at afternoon/evening. The load on the server from 5pm until 2am (EST) is immense, so if you try to connect then, it'll be tough going...

Most likely the reason is that etree04 has all the newer contents and is really popular. In addition, none of the other three servers you named are running md5check during the day so that frees up a lot of resources making them quicker to respond to your requests.

Let us know how that works.
